Totally non Dead but I was thinking about this on the "greatest performances" topic. I think Phil Collins at Live aid is one of the great underrated gems of all time. Was his work on the Zep reunion great? No, but let's take a look at what he did. Does a set in London, takes a concorde to Philly hours later and does another set there. Sits in with Clapton on drums and then oh yeah, has the "easy" task of replacing John Bonham in a moment all of Led Zep have been waiting for in front of the entire world no less. No pressure there. Almost 30 years ago. Man I'm getting old
